Wellbeing & Emotional Health
What is Emotional Health and Wellbeing?
It includes being happy and confident. It’s about having good relationships with others, being able to cope with the day-to-day routines without feeling anxious or depressed.
This year we are working with a variety of stakeholders to implement the role of ‘Emotional Health and Wellbeing lead’.
Our lead for this is Mrs Jennie White.
What does this mean for our school?
Over the year, we are going to be working with our children to continue to promote a positive environment which promotes positive emotional health and wellbeing. All children from Reception – Year 6 will take part in short mindfulness activities after lunchtime, along with many other things throughout the year… watch this space!
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is about clearing the mind, and letting it relax. It’s about fully attending to what’s happening, to what you are doing, to the space you’re moving through. Our mind often wanders and we lose touch with our body and the present moment. When our minds wander we can very quickly become engrossed in other thoughts that become too big and can lead to us feeling anxious. Mindfulness allows us to reign in our thoughts and concentrate on the ‘here and now.’
